Many men, especially as they get older, begin to have issues with their prostate. The prostate is a walnut-size gland, but it can increase in size. This enlargement causes a problem with urine flow. It can result in a weak stream, frequent urination, and ultimately in urinary retention, a very serious issue.
If you've been diagnosed with prostate problems, or you suspect you have one because of the following symptoms, you need to be checked:
- Cannot start urinating
- Frequent trips to the bathroom at night
- A weak urine stream
The most common cause of prostate problems is Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH). But you should always keep in mind that it could be Prostate Cancer. Therefore prostatic problems should trigger investigation immediately.
How to Ease Your Symptoms
The most likely cause of benign prostatic hypertrophy is hormonal imbalance, especially when involving excess estrogen, or estrogen dominance. This imbalance could be corrected with the support of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, a method that uses hormones that are chemically identical to our own hormones to replace what's missing from the body. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to your own hormones, so your body knows what to do with them.
